# Johnny spends half of his weekly paycheck on groceries. He then earns \$55 doing yard work for his grandma. He ends the week with \$216. How much is his paycheck?

\$ 322

Step-by-step explanation:

x = his paycheck

x - 1/2x + 55 = 216

1/2x + 55 = 216

1/2x = 216 - 55

1/2x = 161

x = 161 * 2

x = \$ 322

What is equation of line?

The equation of a line is a single representation of numerous points on the line. The general form of the equation of a line is of the form ax + by + c = 0 and any point on the line satisfies this equation. These two minimum requirements to form the equation of a line are the slope of the line and a point on the line.

Given equations:

y=-1/3x+4

3y-x=12

Now,

a1 = 1/3, b1 = 1, c1=-4

a2= -1, b2= 3, c2=12

Now, a1/a2 = (1/3)/ (-1)= -1/3

b1/b2= 1/3

c1/c2= -4/12= -1/3

So, a1/a2≠ b1/b2

Thus, the line is intersecting line and intersecting line has one solutions.

As, the intercept is 4.

Hence, there is one solution, (0,4).

The answer for this problems is D. because the y-intercept is 4 for both equations.
plus u can find the answer in math-way ;).

Which expressions are equivalent? A. 1/5 k - 2/3 j and - 2/3 j + 1/5 k

B. 1/5 k - 2/3 j and - 1/5 k + 2/3 j

C. 1/5 k - 2/3 j and 1/5 j -2/3 k

D. 1/5 k - 2/3 j and 2/3 j - 1/5 k

The two values on the right side are (+1/5k) and (-2/3j), so the left side must also have a -2/3j and a +5/3k

Step-by-step explanation:

Students found that a box with sides 12cm, 3 cm, and 3 cm held 43 Jelly Beans? - What is the volume of the box?

- What is the ratio of jelly beans to the volume of the box (in cm^3 )?

- Using the ratios found above, how many Jelly Beans would fit in a rectangular jar 28 cm tall with, that is 14 cm wide and 12 cm deep?

Volume = 108 cm³

Ratio = 0.398 skittle/cm³

No of jellies it will hold = 1872

Step-by-step explanation:

Given:

Sides of the boxes = 12 cm , 3 cm and 3 cm

Total Jelly hold = 43 jelly

Other Box dimensions = 28 cm , 14 cm , 12 cm

To Find:

Volume = ?

Ratio of jellies to volume = ?

No of jelly fit in another box = ?

Solution:

Volume of a box is given by the formula

Volume = Length * width * Height

Putting in the values

Volume = 12 * 3 * 3

= 108 cm³

Now to find Ratio of jellies to Volume of box which is

Jellies : Volume  = 43 : 108

As 43 and 108 both are  not divisible by any number so it can be written as

=

= 0.398 jellies / cm³

Which is the required ratio

Now we have to find How many jellies fit in a new box  So

Volume of new box =length * width * height

=28*14*12

= 4704 cm³

This box holds Jellies = Volume * ratio of each jelly per cm³

Putting in the values

Holding of jellies = 4704 * 0.398

= 1872.19 jellies or 1872 jellies
